terpkristin | 4219 comments I've been listening to the audio version of the Mistborn series and would highly recommend it.

If your last entry is supposed to be "The Name of the Wind" (instead of The Way of the Wind), I'd recommend that, though, before Mistborn.

BigShotBob | 2 comments The Name of the Wind. Fantastic, mammoth read. Bonus: the next installment is due out in the next couple of months.

Bill | 116 comments All the positive reviews convinced me. (Plus, the "mammoth read" comment.) Just bought it and it's next in the que. Thanks, all.

(But I gotta finish Factotum. Damn did it just get good.)

Bill | 116 comments Okay, almost done with Name of the Winds. So, here's a revised list of what I should read next.

Assasin's Apprentice (Hobb)
Way of Kings
The Blade Itself
Perdido Street Station
Kushiel's Dart

Sandi (sandikal) | 1212 comments Go for Perdido Street Station first. It's a stand-alone, but you can re-visit the world in other books that are also stand-alone.

The Blade Itself.
